IRVING, Texas (SMU) - Alisha Filmore, a junior guard on the SMU women's basketball team, was named as one of 12 Conference USA student-athletes who will receive the C-USA Winter Spirit of Service Award. The C-USA Spirit of Service Award is designed to recognize the community service efforts of the league's student-athletes, based upon significant community service, good academic standing and participation in their elected sport.

Filmore, a native of Mansfield, Texas, serves as a mentor for Promise House, an organization which embraces homeless, runaway and at-risk teens and as a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters. She volunteers with the North Texas Food Bank and organized a canned goods drive with SAAC and participated in the Conference USA initiative.

The two-year starter also has volunteered her time during the past three years at the Kids Get Fit Fest, a free event put on by the Dallas Area Coalition to Prevent Childhood Obesity. She is a team leader for Relay for Life and is a member of the executive board of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

On the court, Filmore led C-USA in 3-point shooting (41.3 percent) and was fourth in free throw shooting at 78.2 percent. She was second on the team, averaging 10.2 points per game. She scored a career-high 29 points against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, and scored at least 20 points in three games. She reached double-figures in 15 of 31 games.
